Washington -- If you were reading The Wall Street Journal late last week, you might have noticed a story about federal prosecutor John Durham from Connecticut. He is the man that Attorney General William Barr tapped a year ago to look into irregularities allegedly committed surrounding the 2016 election, possibly by high-ranking officials in our...Read more
Washington -- Conscientious conservative that I am, every afternoon I attempt to clear my mind of the day's claptrap and sprinkle it with a little levity by tuning in to Fox News' "The Five." It rarely lets me down. Sometimes I guffaw. Sometimes I merely snicker. All five of the participants have something to say that is refreshingly original, ...Read more
Washington -- Conservatives and libertarians around the country are becoming increasingly uneasy about what Washington is doing to our economy. Before the coronavirus struck, many were anxious about the swamp packing another $1 trillion of debt into our deficit. Now Washington is talking about spending close to $2 trillion to treat the ...Read more
Washington -- There is a new book out that bids fair to win this year's J. Gordon Coogler Award for The Worst Book of the Year, and remember, the year has just begun. The dreadful effort is "The Ones We've Been Waiting For: How a New Generation of Leaders Will Transform America." Its author is Charlotte Alter. The book takes its dreadful title ...Read more
Washington -- The forces of militant ignorance are in motion again. They are marching with Crazy Bernie Sanders and his spendthrift wife. They are marching with Congressgirl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former bartendress. They are rousing the drowsy forces of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the drowsy forces of the Occupy D.C. movement, ...Read more
Washington -- Last week, the Washington Times had an inspirational moment. On Thursday, the editors wrapped this venerable newspaper in a red-inked wrapper and presented readers with an evocative question. In the top half of the wrapper, they asked boldly:
"Tired of being ...
Now, whom do you think the Times -- ...Read more
Washington -- Poor old James Carville is in the dumps. He doubts that Crazy Bernie can beat President Donald Trump in November. He appeared on MSNBC last week and said that anyone who thought Sen. Bernie Sanders would turn out more voters in sufficient numbers to beat Trump was "a fool." Well, on that point, he might be right. Carville has been ...Read more
Washington -- I am rounding the last turn of Charles Moore's magisterial biography of Margaret Thatcher. It is no sprint. It is not even a long-distance race. It is a marathon of a literary work, three volumes. Three thick volumes. Yet, as I have said, it is a masterpiece. Charles loves Ms. Thatcher. That is not to say he lets her off ...Read more
Washington -- What political party does the Democratic Party remind you of? Their leader, until they settle on a presidential candidate, is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. She is almost 80 years of age and consults a plastic surgeon as frequently as she consults her hairdresser, according to my sources. Critics ...Read more
Washington -- Regarding the failed impeachment of our president, I have a few observations.
The Democrats, led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff, charged President Donald Trump with "abuse of power" and the risible charge of "obstruction of Congress." The historically minded reader will remember these charges as being what Republicans in the 1930s and in ...Read more
Washington -- Dare we call it the Trump Revolution? We call the presidency of Ronald Reagan the Reagan Revolution. Well, consider what President Donald Trump has achieved in but three years. He has revived the economy with ample growth, historically low levels of unemployment and efficiencies in the economy thanks to the removal of unnecessary ...Read more
Washington -- Last week was a good week for Queen Elizabeth II. At 93 years of age, she once again asserted her authority and looked, by the way, terrific. Good show, Your Highness.
However, last week was a bad week for Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood producer, friend of the Clintons, major Democratic donor and defendant accused of ...Read more
Washington -- I see that the mainstream media is promoting the candidacies of Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden at the expense of the 10 other admitted Democratic candidates and the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Democrats who feel in their heart of hearts that they should be president. They would become president after ...Read more
